Seibu Group Supplier Guidelines

Request to all our suppliers (business partners)



The Guidelines are intended for the Seibu Group, together with all of its suppliers, to contribute to the materialization of a sustainable society.
The Seibu Group aims to realize a sustainable society by helping to develop communities and society, preserve the environment, and provide safe and secure services through Seibu Group companies’ services, as well as take up the challenge of creating a new sense of excitement for customers with pride and responsibility. The Group is actively promoting initiatives through “Sustainability Action.” However, a sustainable society cannot be achieved through the Seibu Group’s efforts alone. Therefore, we are considering engaging in this matter while respecting our mutual positions and seeking cooperation in order to build mutual trust with all of our suppliers, whether in Japan or overseas, who sympathize with our initiatives. The Seibu Group will communicate actively to ensure that all of its suppliers understand and sympathize with our initiatives.
We request that all of our suppliers understand the “Seibu Group’s Sustainable Procurement Policy,” which defines the Seibu Group’s way of thinking about procurement, and make efforts in line with the following contents when engaging in transactions with us.
Seibu Group companies may ask you, as suppliers, to provide opportunities for us to verify the status of your activities. Besides, we would also like you to work with your business partners to understand the “Seibu Group’s Sustainable Procurement Policy” and move forward in line with the contents of the Guidelines* in order to contribute to realizing a sustainable society throughout all of our supply chains.
